Trigger warning: The below reblog was written by an East Indian medical student currently living and working in India. It contains material that may easily offend a good number of people.
A reminder that all comments on my blog are moderated. If you are offended by this post and wish to lash out at me or any of my other readers, your comments will *not* be approved. Threats and personal attacks will result in your being immediately banned.
Please read my below preface and proceed at your own risk.
From a blogger who writes under the pseudonym Avicenna on his Freethought blog, “Atheist Medical Student Stuck in a Land of a Million Gods.”
It’s a very long post, but *well worth* the time it takes to read.
It delves deeply into culturally dangerous ground, discussing as it does – at length – the misogny & rape culture so deeply embedded in Indian society….and how one feeds the other to hurt both men and women.
Again, remember this is *not* my work.
However, I do think it’s a very important contribution in the fight for equality for all genders, and strongly believe it is a very important article that needs to reach as many people as possible. Please understand that I am not reblogging this with any racial, sexist or political motive.
